The guy who said the 2011 528 had a 4 is a moron. For some reason, ignorant people come here and feel the need to tell the world how ignorant they are.

A cap cost reduction is money YOU pay to reduce the monthly payments on a lease, and is almost always a really bad deal, designed to snare suckers who are clueless about leasing.
